Mt. Veeder on Snooth

  • Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder Napa Mountain 1984

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty wine in the glass with no bricking appearance. Some funk on the nose, but otherwise suggestive of black fruit. On the tip of the tongue, Im getting a bit of tart dark fruit. As the wine passes back I am enjoying the elegance that comes from years (decades, in this case) of bottle age. However, there is a slight suggestion of oxid... Read More

  • I think JD is correct when you talk about Cab Sauv. Best is from Napa and you ... you ... also Brandlin and Mt Veeder, both of which are actually from Mt Veeder. In a more middle-of-the-road style, there are things like Pine Ridge, Trefethen, Chateau Montelena, Hewitt and Chappellet.Then you say best other. For me, that would probably mean Zi... Read More

  • Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1976

    Snoothrank:

    [This wine was gifted to me by my brother-in-law who found it in an estate sale. We believe the storage for the last 40 years was less than ideal.] Slight bricking color. Very musty or maybe, horsey, nose. On the tip of the tongue, this one is surprisingly refreshing. Some dried fruit flavorscherry, plum. Very sedate tannin, but still so... Read More

  • Mark, Carneros and Oak Knoll get most of the Napa mention for cooler weather (Pinot, Chard, Merlot), but I don't see any reason why Pritchard Hill would be any less, it probably carries an elevation along with it. For that matter, any mountain site in Napa with elevation such as Howell or Mt. Veeder would be interesting, but the opportunity cost... Read More

  • Welcome to the Forum WW.  Of the wineries that you listed as tentative stops, the only one I have visited is Vincent Arroyo, and I certainly endorse your idea to visit them.  It definitely fits you goal of finding "off-beat wineries."  I had never heard of Jarvis (maybe I'm a troglodyte), but I visited their web site, and agree that they sound p...
